BBS Documentary: Interview with Pirate BBS Operator


Published November 2, 2002
Topics Documentary


Some of the documentary sessions were done by setting up in a space during conventions and recording short sequences with any attendees who wanted to speak about BBSes. Since these interview sets were unplanned and free-form, they went in really unexpected directions and ranged heavily in both subject manner and style.

In one case, the interviewee did not want to be recorded on video, but wanted to be interviewed anyway. He claimed to have been a member of the pirate group Razor 1911, and to have been involved in the 1990s on several pirate BBSes.

This is the resulting recording. We talk about the mindset of pirating, and the rules of honor and business that the interviewee believes pervade the "scene".
